Lithium ER. ER? I think of Emergency Room. Why would anyone want to associate an emergency room with the drugs they take daily? LOL

> > I've been on (Lithobid) Lithium ER with good results but now they want to put me on the new generic - can they force me to switch? Should I be concerned? I -and definitely the insurance company- will save money, but the insurance company doesn't have to deal with side effects. I started on Lithobid (brand name for lithium er slow release by SOL) due to gastrointestinal problems with Lithium Carbonate (not slow release).
